The next installment of the series, Grand Theft Auto IV (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV) (GTA IV), is slated to be released on October 16, 2007 for the PlayStation 3 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_3) and the Xbox 360 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360) (along with the possibility of a Nintendo Wii (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii) version[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_(series)#_note-GTA_IV_on_Wii)), the first Grand Theft Auto to be released simultaneously on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms. The Xbox 360 version of the game have been indicated to obtain its own exclusive downloadable episodic content (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Episodic_games) via Xbox Live (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_Live). The only other information released by Rockstar has been regarding GTA IV's game engine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_engine), which will be the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockstar_Advanced_Game_Engine) (a.k.a. RAGE) used in Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockstar_Games_presents_Table_Tennis). The first Grand Theft Auto IV trailer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trailer_%28film%29) will be released for public viewing on March 29, 2007.





Official trailer coming on the 29th March. But dont expect it to give too much away. Id love it if CJ returned for this one, because San Andreas was so good. Post whatever you hear about this game, features, sountrack, charecters, places, weapons, anything. Im sure im not the only one looking forward to this. Should look amazing on the next gen consoles.

I heard it was set in '90s New York which is a shame. I really wanted it to be set in London to piss all the American fan boys off

I was planning on buyin a PS3 honestly for this game alone when I first heard it announced last year, but since its comin on 360 also(which i already own) than im set.

I think its sweet that using XBOX Live you can download new maps/extended maps

Nifty. I should have the money for a PS3 in time for this coming out. I always like how Rockstar reveal very little about forthcoming titles. I don't like the idea of London personally, unless it was like 60s or something. Rio or Tokyo would be much more fun.

Who cares if its in London...what is with this bullshit bickering??? They have done LA, LV, SF, NYC, Miami already.....They need to do Chicago, Boston, Philly, Cleveland, Detroit...that'd be tight. Europe would be cool, they could do it like San Andreas...you could go from London to Paris to Rome....that shit would be ill.

They should take it right back to the beginning, like when you could pick your character and stuff. Though it didn't matter much in GTA as they all looked the same from birdseye view. They should be taking the concept to the next level regardless, and there's only a couple more days til the trailer is out.

03-24-2007, 11:42 PM
because in GTA4 there going to make up there own citys and everything like they did in number 3. they're gonna make it in no specific time set.

like SA LC and VC were based on real citys ya know? still idk

That is a nice idea, somthin I have accually thought would be sweet for a couple years.

Like once you enter the car, there is a lil meter on one of the corners of the screen showin how much is left in it

03-25-2007, 03:53 PM
I loved Tommy Vercetti...only thing I haven't liked abut SA so far is that you get away from the gangbangin so quick its over before you even realize it, then your working for the CIA which is ok, but i dunno, it got kinda far fetched.
I kno its just a game, but some more realism with the story would have been nice.
That would be cool if in the next one, you could do seperate mission with different guys...like say you Tommy Vercetti, and Carl Johnson both had different missions and ran different parts of town.

Watcha you mean far fetched? You mean you never did shady jobs for the CIA to get your brother out of prison? That shit happens all the time in the hood. Just like killing 100 black guys all dressed in the exact same clothing, only to come back to the same neighbor hood an hour later to kill a hundred more......kinda reminds me of that time I got shot 10 times before bareley making it into a Pizza Hut to save my health................lucky there was body armor hidden in that alley way by the dumpster, near the mysterious floating package.......

Nice trailer. I'm assuming they're going to keep the GTA concept in the 3 major areas they've used in previous games, which I suppose isn't such a bad thing in terms of consistency. It'll be another 4 or so months before we get another trailer now, fuckers.

he def sounds russian, i doubt it'd be anything else, with the whole russian mob scene more prominent than any other slavic/balkan organizations, graphics look fuckin tight, i hope if its the same liberty city setting as before they make portland more grimey because thats the best island out of any fuckin GTA game so far

in terms of storylines - if they set this game AFTER GTA3 in Liberty City that means that there cant be any motorbikes because - in the storyline - they banned motorbikes between LCS and GTA3, which is how they explained their absence in GTA3....the rumours begin....

where u hear this?

The Hound
03-29-2007, 11:21 PM
that was rockstars explanation for leaving the bikes out GTA3 when, i think liberty city stories came out, because everyone was like 'no bikes in gta3 but theyre in LCS' and LCS took place a few years before GTA3 and it came out like in the storyline sometime between LCS and GTA3 liberty city passed a law outlawing motorbikes, which is the explanation why they were in LCS and not in GTA3, so theoretically if this game takes place AFTER GTA3 there shouldnt be motorbikes, but no doubt like prohibition it will probably get knocked on the head ... just a thought ...

03-30-2007, 12:16 AM
Oh, it's definately gonna blow my mind. I'm just expecting this one to dissapoint because of how much people are gonna be expecting of it. I have no doubt it'll be one of the highest rated games of '07 but at the same time I doubt it will achieve the 9.9 raiting IGN gave San Andreas.

The Hound
03-30-2007, 12:48 AM
what i would like to see is GTA4 expand on GTA3 - GTA3 had the best feel out of all of em - gritty, industrial portland, city high life of staunton island, peaceful suburbia of shoreside vale

i wonder if the triads/colombians are still in business, what impact the forelli's/leone's have got since claude fucked them over, aww man fuck 4 months i want it now

AND BRING BACK CHATTERBOX - that shit was the funniest

"Citizens Raging Against Phones" "CRAP? your organization is called CRAP?"

"I WAS BORN NAKED, IM GONNA DIE NAKED AND IM GONNA LIVE NAKED!!" "and all shriveled up by the sounds of it"

I cummed my pants by watching the trailer. Ive been waiting for years for this game. Only a few months left!
But uhm, too bad it aint CJ no more. And i don't like LC that much either, but it looks good tho.
I also demand they have 3 or more cities again in this game like with GTA:SA..that is cool. Only 1 city wil ruin it.
Imma buy an PS3 for this game tho..i expect the game to look the best on this console.

So we get to play as an illegal-immigrant, could be interesting. Its obviously set in NY AKA Liberty City, due to the Statue of Liberty in the trailer. This game looks ill, i thought SA wouldn't be topped but it looks like it...

Rockstar done it again.

Inspectah_Dirk
03-30-2007, 03:09 PM
I do hope the background/story of the main character is worked out really well, cuz that makes the game so much better. I also hope there will be alot of famous voices in it, always a nice touch.
I don't know when this is set, probably after San Andreas, so the chances of running into CJ are slim, but it would be dope, also if that GTAIII dude was there doing his thing..forgot his name.
Uhm..im guessing that there arent 3 cities, but that Liberty City is much much bigger now.
First rumors where that it would be set in London, because of the first gta game..there were the 3 cities there that have been done already, and the expansion was London. But that a big no now i guess.
Maybe you get to fly to Europe for some shit, seeing it is an immigrant.

But whatever Rockstar does, i don't think i will be disappointed. Only shitty thing is that i have to wait way too long for it to come out haha.
And in the meantime all the rumors will start growing making the changes for disappointment bigger. But fuck those fake fanboys!

err thats the whole idea of it ...

why everyone in love with CJ, he wasnt that good

remember agallah/sean price/royce da 5'9 on game radio so might not be strictly NY, dont get your hopes up on wu tang lol id say the only wu we'll see on radio, if we get some, would be from the new album, but i guess it depends when they set it, since GTA 3 was set in our time around 01, vice city, san andreas are set in the past, and this called GTA 4 id say itd take place in 07, just seems logical

i bet you anything 50 cent/g unit will be on the radio ...

its liberty city
the whole trailer has the word liberty all over the place

cluckin chicken is back as well
and there is a show called top hooker (top model) in the game bc you can see the poster, so you probably have to help out with the show by getting hookers or some shit (russia, bosnia, and those places have a history of fucked up shit like kidnapped young girls and forcing them into prostituion, if thats in the game thats pretty fucked up) the guy is russain after all, he even says that he has sold people

gta 3 definately had the best city compared to vice and Andreas, so hopefully they bring back those locales

Can't wait for this to come out... I just read that the city of New York aint to happy that it's taking place in NY. They don't like the idea that you can run around and kill cops for points (money) and stuff.
I wonder if this would have anything to do with the Sean Bell shooting...

I'm going to be dissapointed if the game just takes place in Liberty City. They gotta give at least 3 cities to romp through, or might as well just play San Andres. But, Rockstar hasn't let me down since State of Emergency.

Inspectah_Dirk
04-03-2007, 03:05 PM
But NY shouldnt bitch. It's taking place in LC that is based on NY. Sure there are some landmarks, but fuck it. Many different research has shown that people don't copy any shit like violence from games, policticians want us to believe it is true, but it isn't. Even professors at the University who teach multimedia say so.
But i want more than LC as well. Unless it's like really big with alot of different areas. But i can trust on Rockstar i guess..like Charging Soldier says as well, they havent let me down so far.

since san andreas has 3 major west coast cities like LA, San Fran & Vegas, GTA IV should have 3 east coast cities like NY (with the bridges and other landmarks), Boston (with the trollies) & Chicago or Atlantic City (with the Casinos)

But seeing there are planes in this game that you can control, it might not happen to have the towers in it. It's a little stupid to have the ability in a game to fly a plane in the twin towers or anything that resembles them..
Just the towers in them is fine with me, but the whole flying a plane in them..not so much. But we all know R*..so maybe it will happen. Who knows.

i understand what you mean ... but like i think its a different ball game when you dealing with 9/11 ... like to me and you we dont live in america so its a different case of sensitivity ya kno ? ... i remember when GTA3 came out and they changed cop uniforms and cop cars to resemble LAPD instead of NYPD because of 9/11 ... but in any event liberty city doesnt really resemble NYC that much ... which is why i was suprised the statue of liberty was in the video :? unless its one of those things to get us all talking about one angle that seems so obvious then they hit us with something completely from left field ...

UK, April 24, 2007 - The first gameplay details of Rockstar's upcoming epic Grand Theft Auto IV have been unveiled, just a couple of weeks since the first teaser trailer caused a major stir across the world.

Game Informer's Andrew Reiner -- one of the few journalists to see the game -- lifted the lid on some of the features we can expect to see when GTA IV launches in October.

Top of the list is the fact that players can fly across Liberty City, although not in planes. "There are no airplanes in the game but flying is still there," he explained. "One means of this is the helicopter. This is just one city and a plane really doesn't fit into that very well for gameplay. Flying is still very much a large part of the game."

Reiner also said that the driving experience was far closer to something like Midnight Club rather than previous GTA titles and that the camera angle sat closer to the car, which showed off vehicles in more detail and also enabled players to see more of the city as they drive around.

Talking of the city, Reiner added that even though he saw an early version of the game, it was already looking stunning. "The visuals are tremendous and easily some of the best I have seen. What's scary about this statement is that Rockstar North is still improving upon the visuals. There's little question that it will be one of the best looking games come this holiday," he said.

Other details revealed by Reiner include the possibility that players may be able to drive boats, get a girlfriend and - bizarrely - climb up telegraph poles. Rockstar also hinted to him that previous characters from GTA titles might put in an appearance, plus Reiner predicts that locations outside of Liberty City could be downloaded from Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network.

Whatever Rockstar squeezes into GTA IV, if it's got helicopters we're happy.

Seems pretty good

The Hound

What's the crack with the 360/PS3 deal? Is there any difference in release dates or content in games? GTA used to be up there with the PS exclusive, and Xbox having to wait ages, but now it seems like GTA is not even made specially for PS at all.

06-02-2007, 09:24 AM
They're coming out on the same day I think but R* are having problems with developing for the 360 and each problem. Both platforms are supposed to have exclusive content to download

And there's also a special edition with a shit load of free stuff

Bloo
06-02-2007, 08:01 PM
The only prob Rockstar is having with development for the 360 is the lack of space. Microsoft's idea to go with standard DVDs is starting to bite them in the ass as they're having trouble fitting all of the new Liberty City onto one disc. But just like every other GTA since the franchise started, you can assure that there will be a PS3, 360, and PC version.

you got a link that confirms this? I´m pretty sure it isn´t true. The two versions should be almost identical. The reason xbox gets exclusive content is because microsoft paid rockstar $50 to keep it. it has nothing to do with disk space. Also, the 360 version is the one they keep showing off, so I´m not so sure that that version is worse. We´ll see when it launches....

Search IGN. R* have confirmed they're having trouble with the size of the 360 disc so they think they may have to downsize. There will also be a few changes between the 2 version as PS3's Blu Ray (which was stolen) can hold a lot more information than 360's HDDVD or something along those lines

36chambers
07-07-2007, 08:06 AM
^^yeah its true.

Because a Blu Ray can hold alot more than the 360's HD-DVD they are limited to producing the game. They should have just made 2 diff versions but they'll probably port the 360 version to the PS3, im not 100% sure.

They wouldn't be able to. The most they'd be able to do is release it on a dual-layer DVD-9 which maxes out at 8.5 gigs. Now that's a lot of space but probably still not enough depending on how epic Rockstar plans on making this game. The HD-DVD is always an option, but that would mean 360 owners would have to go out and buy a $250 add on just to play the game and that's not fair.

Besides, I don't believe the HD-DVD player has the ability to stream game media, but that doesn't mean it can't happen...

The August issue of GamesTM (a multi-format games magazine based in the UK) contains a world exclusive first look at the new gameplay in Grand Theft Auto IV. Here's a brief run-down on some of the new stuff mentioned:

- The demo begins in Grand Theft Auto IV's equivalent of Times Square: Star Junction. There aren't many pedestrians present at this time, but this is most likely due to the early nature of the code.

- The mobile phone can be used to gain weapons. In the demo that GamesTM saw, Niko calls his associate Little Jacob, who is a caribbean arms dealer. After a brief chat with Jacob, he tells Niko to meet him in an alleyway in Rotterdam Hill, where he purchases the weapons from him. No more Ammu-Nation it seems.

- Niko can use taxis to get around (presumably he can use the phone to call a taxi). The police are much more vigilant in GTA IV, and sometimes it is less hassle using a taxi than jacking someone's car. The trip-skip option is available for convenience.

- In the demo, Niko recieves a call concerning "shady lawyer" Goldberg, of Goldberg, Ligner & Shyster (GLS). Niko can use the internet in GTA4. He heads over to an internet café called the "Tw@ Café," and hops onto a PC before surfing. He uploads his CV to the GLS website so he can get an interview - before killing Goldberg. He receives a phonecall confirming the time of his interview. The web is available from any computer in the game, and provides a hub for all sorts of interactivity within Liberty City.

- Missions in GTA IV can be interrupted. The interview isn't until tomorrow, which means you can carry out other business until then. This suggests you can do several missions at the same time, and missions can take place over several days, perhaps.

- Next in the demo, Niko pays a visit to somebody called McReary, at Castle Gardens, a coast-side hangout overlooking the Statue of Hapiness. McReary has had a memory stick stolen from him which contains sensitive data, and he wants Niko to retrieve it for him. He takes another cab to the meeting point, where the target is standing amongst a crowd of people. The problem is he doesn't know which one it is, so he gives him a call to see which one picks up their phone. Niko shoots the target three times in the back of the head, before taking the memory stick and making a run for it. He gains a three-star wanted level as a result.

- Committing crimes isn't as easy in GTA IV. You gain a wanted level for every crime you commit, aslong as there are witnesses present. Once you have gained a wanted level, a visible (circular) search area appears on the radar, and if you escape this area without being spotted, your wanted level will flash and disappear. If you are spotted, however, the search area's position changes, and centers on where you were last spotted. So unlike previous GTA games, the police don't always know where you are. They can't catch you unless they find you first. It was confirmed previously that in GTA IV every street will be named, and this is what cops use to communicate when they are tracking you down. There are no Pay N' Spray's to save you this time, unfortunately.

- Before heading off to the interview, Niko goes to a menswear store called Perseus. After spending $2,000 on a new suit and shoes, his phone alarm sounds and he begins his journey to the GLS offices for his interview. He speaks to the receptionist from outside the building via intercom, before making his way into the building. He enters Goldeberg's office and puts a bullet in his head, which causes his secretary to trigger the alarm. Niko must beat security guards and police in order to get out of the building. Bullets rain down on him, and there's a police chopper waiting outside. It seems as though the more bullets he takes, the more damage he takes, and hence he becomes less able to fight. The damage is actually visible this time.

Yes but it would be easier to port the 360 version to the PS3. If they tried to port the PS3 version to the 360 it might not be possible due to the Blu-Ray disks being more GIGs than a HD-DVD.

Hopefully they'll tweak it a bit for the PS3 though, cant see Rockstar wasting all that free space on the Blu ray disks.

Nah, not the film, from the game. In the game you ring an arms dealer for guns obviously and when your wanted by the police there's a circle on the map which you have to get out of to get away from the police

Some new GTA IV gameplay details have emerged in the latest issue of UK magazine PLAY. It clarifies a lot of the things mentioned in the GamesTM exclusive preview which we told you about on Monday. Here are some of the new points:

- McReary, the character we learned about in GamesTM, is a corrupt cop. He has "dirt on Niko's past." The mission they previewed is called "Call and Collect."

- Little Jacob (a caribbean arms dealer) is a good friend of Niko's cousin. When you buy weapons from him (which are kept in his trunk) you can scroll through them like you did in Ammu-Nation in the previous GTA games. Rotterdam Hill (the place where Niko agrees to meet Jacob) is in Alderney - the GTA IV equivalent of New Jersey.

- Niko kills Goldberg (the shady lawyer) because he owes a favour to somebody. Rockstar showed the sequence where he kills Goldberg twice. The first time he fell out of the window, the second time he merely crumpled on the floor.

- When purchasing clothes, you have to choose the items from the shelf individually.

- Determining which figures you need to kill requires perception - there are no arrowheads to direct you like in the previous games.

- Once you gain a wanted-level, the map flashes with circles of blue and red, with each circle representing the line of sight of the police chase. The circles differ in size depending on your wanted-level.

- The default camera view when driving rests around the left-hand side of the car above the road.

- Multiplayer is accessed via your mobile phone.

- The combat rests somewhere between Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War in terms of style, allowing you to roll, find protection and blind-fire from behind cover.

- Shooting different parts of the body has different impacts (e.g shoot a security guard in the foot at the top of the stairs, and he'll come tumbling down.)

- In GTA IV you have to develop relationships with other characters. Your relationship with Little Jacob, for example, is maintained through phone calls and loyalty. Developing good relationships with different characters can provide different rewards.

The release date for GTA IV has been pushed back to April 2008.

Take-Two is reducing its fiscal 2007 guidance primarily to reflect the movement of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 to fiscal 2008, due to additional development time required to complete the title. The title is now planned for release in the Company’s second quarter of fiscal 2008.

Why, you ask?

Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two, stated, “With Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar is setting a new standard for next generation video games. Certain elements of development proved to be more time-intensive than expected, especially given the commitment for a simultaneous release on two very different platforms. We all recognize that perfecting the game is vital and I can assure everyone it will be worth the wait. We owe it to the game’s millions of fans, to our dedicated development team, and to our shareholders to make sure that Grand Theft Auto IV is a groundbreaking gaming experience that takes maximum advantage of next generation technology.”

Sam Houser, Founder and Executive Producer of Rockstar Games, added, "The new consoles are allowing us to create the Grand Theft Auto game we always dreamed about. Every aspect of the game and its design has been completely transformed. The game is huge and is pushing the hardware platforms to their absolute limits. The top engineers from Sony and Microsoft are working closely with the team in Edinburgh right now, helping us to fully leverage the power of both platforms. As always, our goal is to surpass even the wildest expectations of the game’s fans, and to create the ultimate high definition video game experience."
